Repost of Veronika Zemanová[edit]

A tag has been placed on Veronika Zemanová requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia, because it appears to be a repost of material that was previously deleted following a deletion process. If you can indicate how it is different from the previously posted material, contest the deletion by clicking on the button that looks like this: Speedy delete contest button.png which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's discussion directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Administrators will consider your reasoning before deciding what to do with the page. If you believe the original discussion was unjustified, please contact the administrator who deleted the page or use deletion review instead of recreating the page. Thank you.

Proposed deletion of List of oud makers[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article List of oud makers has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The article has no references and no notable entries.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Olha Maslivets[edit]

This article was nominated for speedy deletion. Don't worry, I declined it, but you need to say more than just "X is a Ukrainian windsurfer". Clicking the link shows that she is a member of the Olympic team, and therefore certainly notable, but you should say that in the article, otherwise you may get speedy nominations under WP:CSD#A7 "no assertion of importance or significance". Regards, JohnCD (talk) 19:47, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

Correction - it was actually the talk page that was (correctly) nominated for deletion because of vandalism. All the same, my advice is good, even a stub article needs to make clear why its subject is important or significant, a reader should not have to click a reference link to find out. Regards, JohnCD (talk)

Cyclist articles[edit]

Couple of things. Could you add where the person was born to persondata. This one is minor, but the first word should be capitalized in the "short description" section of persondata.

WikiProject assessment tags for talk pages[edit]

Replacement filing cabinet.svg Thank you for your recent articles, including My Nikifor. When you create a new article, can you add the WikiProject assessment templates to the talk of that article? See the talk page of the article I mentioned for an example of what I mean. Usually it is very simple, you just add something like {{WikiProject Keyword}} to the article's talk, with keyword replaced by the associated WikiProject (ex. if it's a biography article, you would use WikiProject Biography; if it's a United States article, you would use WikiProject United States, and so on). You do not have to rate the article if you do not want to, others will do it eventually. Those templates are very useful, as they bring the articles to a WikiProject attention, and allow them to start tracking the articles through Wikipedia:Article alerts and other tools. This can help you too, as the WikiProject members will often defend your work from deletion and try to improve it further. Feel free to ask me any questions if you'd like more information.

Template:Aviation accidents and incidents in 1966[edit]

Gučevo[edit]

I think that your move of Gučevo (mountain) was ill-advised. Both items are relatively obscure, so it is not a big deal, but in general:

  • two-item disambiguation pages are generally undesirable. In that way, 100% of searchers will not arrive to the right place. If you put one term as primary topic, at least 50% of them will.
  • in this case, Gučevo (mountain) is much more prominent than the Bosnian village. In https://www.google.com/search?q=Gučevo&pws=0, the first hit for the village is on page 4.

The rule of thumb that I apply is that 2-item dab pages are OK only for obscure toponyms without clearcut primary topic, and/or where the number of items is likely to grow. No such user (talk) 12:56, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

I reverted it, after all. Special:Whatlinkshere/Gučevo shows many links intended for the mountain, which got broken after the move. See Wikipedia:Hatnote for the right solution of the problem. No such user (talk) 14:01, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
I don't feel strongly one way or the other. I just followed the example from the fr and sr wikipedia, which preferred disambiguation. Modifying those five links to the mountain would have been just as easy an option. Inwind (talk) 14:18, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Chernyshkovsky[edit]

Hi there! Just wanted to let you know that I restored that page again (to follow the spirit of WP:BRD) and provided a rationale on the talk page. Cheers,—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); January 31, 2013; 15:39 (UTC)

You know, I'd appreciate if you could reconsider the tone of this edit summary, please. I've clearly outlined the policy concerns on the talk page, and it is you who persists with re-reverts after being reverted as a part of WP:BRD. What's more, continuing to revert as the discussion is ongoing is not only poor form, it's typically considered to be disruptive behavior as well. I have no desire to escalate this situation any further, but I'd very much appreciate it if you could refrain from making bad-faith assumptions based on nothing but "suspicions". If only I had a quarter every time someone accuses me of "ownership" instead of continuing with the discussion... I'd have a lot of quarters by now! :)—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); January 31, 2013; 16:40 (UTC)
My suspicion on ownership is based on your claim on "policies" which seem to be contrary to those in the Russian wikipedia. I would go along with adding "River" to all Russian rivers even though I would prefer to reserve it to those rivers where disambiguation is required. Even though the interwiki links with the Russian and German wikipedia are upset when using one article for all three genders I would accept your system because you have created the quasi standard in the English wikipedia. The way in which Chernyshkovsky is disambiguated will also make no difference to world as a whole. I trust you to know Wikipedia better than me to find a suitable forum where we could gather a third party opinion for our little argument. Inwind (talk) 07:24, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
Inwind, I'm a little surprised that you don't know this, but Wikipedias in different languages have different, and often incompatible, policies and guidelines. There is a great number of guidelines in the English Wikipedia which do not exist in other editions; same is true the other way around. Each language edition is manned by mostly non-overlapping communities, each language has its quirks, and each culture has differing views on how things (sometimes very basic things!) ought to be done. All in all, the English Wikipedia is no more bound by the Russian or German Wikipedias' policies than the Russian and German Wikipedias are bound by ours. Imagine the outrage if someone in the Russian or German Wikipedia started to insist that all articles about the US cities must be in the "City, State" format solely because that's how it's done in the English wiki! That'd be ridiculous, wouldn't it?

As far as Chernyshkovsky go, it may not make any difference to the world as a whole, but based on the en-wiki policies, which the local community agreed upon, there is one particular way how it should be done. If you don't like that guideline, it is your full right to go to the MOS pages and challenge that guideline there, but please don't take it out on one random hand-picked example or go down the slippery slope of accusing other editors of bad deeds or "ownership".—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); February 1, 2013; 13:13 (UTC)

I agree with you that the naming convention for places in the US is not necessarily the best solution and it is good it is not exported to other wikipedias. However, I can not help the impression that your concept for Russian place name disambiguation follows the same route. I still believe that there could be element of "ownership" in the field of Russian place names in the English wikipedia. I have to admit though that I am a bit of a revolutionist and therefore may be seeing Tsardoms where others don't. Inwind (talk) 16:41, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
It is not "my" concept at all (and I would really appreciate it if you stopped accusing me of "ownership" already) ; I am merely following what our guidelines prescribe. One of my duties as an administrator is to know our policies and I am expected to enforce them when a situation calls for it. This, by the way, is true of whether I "like" a particular guideline or not (and as a private editor, I happen to believe the whole primary topic thing is a bunch of bullshit which creates more problems than it solves).

By the way, did you get a chance to read through those guidelines? Do you believe I am not interpreting them correctly or there is a good reason to make an exception here, one I'm just not seeing? If so, then by all means let's continue to discuss this further on the dab's talk page. That's what BRD is all about.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); February 1, 2013; 17:48 (UTC)

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Don Cohan shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. While you did use a talk page, you did not do it instead of further reverting, but rather continued to revert. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

We noticed though that when you edited Ciske de Rat (1984 film), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Piet Bakker (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Automatically generated categories[edit]

Yes, there's discussions/consensus in the archives of the Film Project. I guess the other 80,000+ film articles are wrong having the categories too? Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 15:23, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of John Henry Dell[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article John Henry Dell has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Cited to a non-existent gallery webpage, I can see little else online to aument the article beyond 7 words.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Speedy deletion nomination of Gerard J. M. van den Aardweg[edit]

Hello Inwind,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged Gerard J. M. van den Aardweg for deletion, because the article doesn't clearly say why the subject is important enough to be included in an encyclopedia.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

Infobox Hungarian settlement[edit]

Hello, it looks as if you have added to this template to show a reference to the Hungarian Statistical Office, but it isn't yet working quite as intended. See, for example, Sződ. There is a message in large red font Cite error: The named reference ksh_cite was invoked but never defined. There are about 20 cases of this where I have added a previously missing {{reflist}} to the page. There may be others where {{reflist}} was already present.

WikiProject assessment tags for talk pages[edit]

Replacement filing cabinet.svg Thank you for your recent articles, including Maria Chwalibóg, which I read with interest. When you create a new article, can you add the WikiProject assessment templates to the talk of that article? See the talk page of the article I mentioned for an example of what I mean. Usually it is very simple, you just add something like {{WikiProject Keyword}} to the article's talk, with keyword replaced by the associated WikiProject (ex. if it's a biography article, you would use WikiProject Biography; if it's a United States article, you would use WikiProject United States, and so on). You do not have to rate the article if you do not want to, others will do it eventually. Those templates are very useful, as they bring the articles to a WikiProject attention, and allow them to start tracking the articles through Wikipedia:Article alerts and other tools. For example, WikiProject Poland relies on such templates to generate listings such as Article Alerts, Popular Pages, Quality and Importance Matrix and the Cleanup Listing. Thanks to them, WikiProject members are more easily able to defend your work from deletion, or simply help try to improve it further. Feel free to ask me any questions if you'd like more information about using those talk page templates. Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 06:03, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Sophie Hunter (theatre director)[edit]

A tag has been placed on Sophie Hunter (theatre director) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G6 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an orphaned disambiguation page which either

  • disambiguates two or fewer extant Wikipedia pages and whose title ends in "(disambiguation)" (i.e., there is a primary topic); or
  • disambiguates no (zero) extant Wikipedia pages, regardless of its title.

Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such pages may be deleted at any time. Please see the disambiguation page guidelines for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Benedict Cumberbath's Personal Life section[edit]

Hi there! Favor? Would you mind amending the paragraph regarding Cumberbatch's engagement to Sophie Hunter? It's rather ambiguous and I think a good context is necessary. I have checked Hunter's page and the paragraph about her engagement is just right.

On 5 November 2014, The Times announced that Hunter and actor Benedict Cumberbatch became engaged.[26] They met on the set of the 2009 film Burlesque Fairytales but didn't start dating until early 2014.[27][28][29]

Thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 180.191.64.243 (talk) 00:28, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Grammar[edit]

Hello! Regarding Benedict Cumberbatch's personal life section, it should be "on the set of" rather than "on the sets of the film Burlesque Fairytales". Please correct. Thank you!180.191.65.179 (talk) 08:25, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Word choices on lead paragraph[edit]

I have an issue with the rather pedestrian word choices on the lead paragraph of Benedict Cumberbatch's page. It says:

"...is an English actor and film producer who has performed in film, television, theatre and radio. He is the son of actors Timothy Carlton and Wanda Ventham and went to school at the University of Manchester and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art."


University of Manchester isn't just a simple "school," it's a university, a higher educational institution. He also got a Masters degree at the London Academy of Dramatic art. It would be better for the sentence to read as:


"is an English actor and film producer who has performed in film, television, theatre and radio. The son of actors Timothy Carlton and Wanda Ventham, he graduated from the University of Manchester and continued his classical acting training at the the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art".

I hope you can help amend the article. Thank you!180.191.64.54 (talk) 04:56, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Wikidata[edit]

Don't forget to connect those articles you created about villages in Bulgaria to Wikidata. For example, "Zhultika" exists at bgwiki (Bulgarian Wikipedia) with the title "Жълтика". It also exists at the Romanian, Kazakh, Russian, and Ukrainian Wikipedias. All of those are connected through Wikidata here. That's where you need to add Zhultika. If you don't connect them then "Zhultika" might eventually get its own item and then one of the Wikidata administrators (like me) will have to delete that making sure it's connected to the other one.
